Java error log related to oo crash.
I wonder if this also happens if you use libgcj ?
Assuming that both are installed, you can tell OOo to use the other with
tools->options->openoffice.org->java and select the "Free Software Foundation"
option instead of the auto-selected "Sun Microsystems" option. And then restart
OOo and try the wizards again

Not sure if this is openjdk specific, but I'm fairly sure that it worked under
libgcj the last time I was able to check under ppc. #3 shows how to try with
libgcj to see if that theory is correct

Yes unfortunately it does. Well the behaviour is slightly different. Instead of
an absolute crash, OO locks solid and CPU usage hangs around %100 indefinately
in some kind of infinite loop.
This is with: libgcj-4.3.0-8.ppc
If there's any way I can get useful debugging information from this, let me know.
Out of curiosity I've just tried IBM's java implementation for PPC:
ibm-java-ppc-sdk-6.0-1.0.ppc.rpm (Java 1.6.0)
and surprisingly this works perfectly. Obviously not an official solution however.
Can you try to reproduce this with the latest version of OpenJDK in rawhide?
This was probably http://icedtea.classpath.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=184.
It should be fixed now, at least upstream.
